This is a great truck. I don't think my Mopar engine is ever giong to die. I have 217000 miles on it and I've never replaced a single thing on the truck.

Looks Good, But...

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Extended Cab ST 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

Love the look, the Sport package, and the dependability of the 4x4. However, not enough power w/5.2L, 5-Spd, & Towing Pkg when towing a pop-up. However, putting a Quad in the bed did not affect drive. Also, already need rear-main replaced, and sometimes the cruise will not stay steady on highway.

Good Overall

Review

This is a good vehicle overall. I have a few problems with it. The gas mileage is really poor compared to other trucks. I think it has a little lack of power. I'll be going down the highway with it on cruise and a small little hill will come up and it will kick down to make it up the hill. Everything else is good. I'm used it off road and its fun to mess with.

Extremely disappointing

Review

My Ram 1500 is really a disappointment. I met more 1500 Ram owners that say the same. My truck has 37,000 and the cruise control, steering pump, electrical system, and power locks all had to be repaired. If that wasn't bad enough the front brake pads and rotors had to be repair/replaced at 12,500. From what other dodge owns tell me the transmission should go out soon. Before buying a RAM ask the owns that have one what they think of their truck.

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 SLT
By NapalmWD40 on 06/18/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Extended Cab Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB

Review

I got my Ram with the 5.9L V8 over the 5.2 because of the increased horsepower and torque. Although it doesnt seem like 10hp and 10 lb-ft would matter, the 5.2 was very underpowered for this size vehicle. I get about 13-15 mpg with this guy. It's pretty wide and long, even with the Short bed on the ext. cab. It barely fits in my garage. Only problem I have is the bottom of the doors are rusting because of poor design on Dodge's part; they failed to have enough drain holes. Aside from that, this is a great vehicle.

Nice Big Truck!

Review

I have not had this truck very long but so far it has been great. I really like the looks of the truck as well as the roomy interior. The truck seems to run good considering its size. My only complaint is the costly gas milage (13/17), but I was aware of it when I bought the truck so I guess I can't complain.
